David Scholer

This is a sequel to the immensely useful Nag Hammadi Bibliography 1948-1969, which was the first volume to appear in the Nag Hammadi Studies series. The volume provides a complete integration of Supplements I-XXIV to the Bibliography as published in Novum Testamentum 1971-1997, with additions and corrections. In total the update contains over 6092 entries.
Nag Hammadi and Gnostic studies continue to be of critical importance for the study of ancient religions in the Graeco-Roman world and for the study of the world of early Christianity, and the present bibliography provides an indispensable reference tool for work in these fields.
Brill’s Nag Hammadi Bibliography Online (NHBO) is a cross-searchable database of books, articles and reviews, which contribute to the study of Gnosticism and early Christianity. The main objective of the NHBO is facilitating the work and international collaboration of all scholars working in this field.

The NHBO succeeds and builds upon the comprehensive but now outdated three-volume Nag Hammadi Bibliography by the late D.M. Scholer. In addition to the data collated by Scholer, the new NHBO includes bibliographic data from 2013 onwards, as well as useful abstracts of every single entry, keywords, and classification data.

Features and Benefits
- Contains about 13,000 entries covering almost all books, journal articles and book articles in various languages on the Nag Hammadi Library
- Two installments per year (about 400 new entries).
- Includes the three Nag Hammadi Bibliography volumes by the late David Scholer
- Instant and cross-searchable
- Includes abstracts and keywords, which will also be added later to Scholer entries from before 2007.

In future, NHBO will also include links to search engines and online publications, and will provide the capability to export texts. The NHBO will be updated annually in order to provide Nag Hammadi scholars with an accurate and up-to-date online resource. In addition, missing bibliographic data for the years 2007 to 2012 will be added to the NHBO from December 2016 onwards. Once this task is complete, the NHBO team will also add the abstracts to the publications included in Scholer’s Bibliography.

The NHBO has three main priorities:
1. Compiling the complete data on all academic publications on Nag Hammadi from 2013 onwards.
2. Filling the hiatus between 2007 and 2012, between Scholer’s Bibliography and the NHBO.
3. Completing Scholer’s data with the addition of abstracts and keywords to the existing materials.

NHBO’s timeline:
1st phase to cover data and publications from 2007 to 2020:
December 2016: publication for the years 2012 to 2015
December 2017: publication for the years 2011 and 2016
December 2018: publication for the years 2010 and 2017
December 2019: publication for the years 2009 and 2018
December 2020: publication for the years 2008 and 2019
December 2021: publication for the years 2007 and 2020
2nd phase (2022 to 2026) to cover data and publications from 2021 to 2025 and to add abstracts, complementary information, and links to the data from Scholer’s Bibliography.

Weima and Stanley E. Porter

This bibliography lists some 1300 works germane for the interpretation of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. It includes all relevant works written in the 20th century as well as a sizeable number of important sources from the 19th century.
Virtually all the works listed are annotated, except for commentaries and dictionary articles. These annotations do not merely describe the content of each source but attempt to summarize its central thesis or argument.
The works listed are classified and cross-indexed in such a way that the user is able to track down easily the relevant sources on any given topic or passage in the Thessalonian letters.

The Bibliography of Literature on First Peter gives comprehensive publication details of a categorized list of articles and books concerned with the exposition of the New Testament letter known as 1 Peter. The bibliography, which primarily presents works of modern scholarship but also includes important works which have appeared throughout the lengthy period of Christian interpretation, has been conceived with the needs of a variety of users in mind. It provides an extremely valuable reference tool for all those interested in a deeper understanding of this important document of early Christianity, and will meet the needs of researchers of all kinds, from lay students to the professional scholar. Not every work represented in this bibliography will be of equal use to all; but judicious selection on the basis of the helpful classification provided will save the researcher much time.

The volume updates an important earlier work by Bruce M. Metzger, Index to Periodical Literature on the Apostle Paul first published in 1960, which undertook to list periodical materials available before 1960. This volume was the first book in the New Testament Tools and Studies series published by Brill.
As with Metzger's volume, this new work lists periodicals in a wide spectrum of languages, including English and Russian. This volume adds considerably to the 3,013 entries of Metzger's original work.
To facilitate use, the original classification and numbering scheme developed by Metzger is retained in the new references (as well as in a few from a second edition by Metzger, 1970). They are inserted in their proper classification (by subject and date) and are indicated by the original number with an alpha extension. In a few instances, new classifications are offered, e.g. 'structuralism'.

Deborah L. Madsen

This is the first bibliography of Postmodernism to take account of work published in all subject areas and in all languages. Deborah Madsen has identified a new first occurrence of the term in 1926, preceding by more than twenty years the first occurence documented by the Oxford English Dictionary. In a chronological listing, books, articles, notes, letters and working papers on Postmodernism are described with full bibliographical details. Reviews of major books are documented and full contents listings are given for special issues of journals devoted to Postmodernism. An appendix includes books on Postmodernism announced for publication in 1995. This bibliography brings together in one place all secondary material published on Postmodernism. All disciplines are included, from anthropology to zoology: architecture, cultural studies, dance, drama, feminism, fiction, geography, history, legal studies, literary theory, mathematics, medicine, music, pedagogical theory, philosophy, photography and film, poetry, politics, religion, sociology, the visual and plastic arts, and others. The bibliography also documents items in a range of languages other than English: Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Slovanian, Spanish, and the Scandinavian languages. Access to the information contained in the bibliography is made easy with a comprehensive index providing guidance according to author, subject, language, and key words. Postmodernism: A Bibliography, 1926-1994 is an essential reference text for anyone working in the area of contemporary culture studies.
